I've been dreaming about both boats at boat shows for a long time . IMO I feel the formula would be a better boat for cruising & entertaining with more luxury while the fountain is closer to its roots as a go-fast type boat with more bling . Either way id be proud to own either but I'd probally go with the Formula SS.

Good Analogy.....

Go look at both of them, I feel the Formula "feels" way bigger then the Fountain, Quality and Luxury go with the Formula.....

Fountain defiantly has more of a cruiser cabin all the luxuries and still goes fast. Formulas SS cabins seems a bit basic. Fountains cabin is more comparable to the formula Pc.
